Report: Rent the Runway returns to normal operations

By Dan Berthiaume - 10/09/2019

Rent the Runway is reportedly once again accepting new orders and customers.

According to Recode, the fashion rental pioneer has ended an almost one-month-long interruption in its regular business as of Tuesday, Oct. 8. This is one week ahead of a previously announced target date for resuming operations.

In late September, Rent the Runway put a temporary hold on accepting new subscribers and new event rentals after a tech system upgrade in its warehouse caused some orders to be delayed. As of Sept. 27, Rent the Runway was running a short statement at the top of its website that stated: “While we complete a system upgrade, we are not accepting new event reservations for delivery before 10/15.”

According to Recode, Rent the Runway has issued refunds and said it would also give impacted customers $200 in cash. To read the full article, click here.
